The art of car lights design

In the past the lights of a car, especially the rear ones, were not really considered as important design elements. The main difference a designer could make was to position them differently and maybe to alter the shape. Later people started to combine different forms and sizes and to position multiple lights at the rear of the body. Today, all is different. With the latest LED technology you have a lot more freedom on how to design the lights. Not just the form and shape but also how they look in the dark. But, be careful, in some cases the result doesn't convince. The Audi Q5 for example has a suboptimal light design in my eyes. And in many cases the designer have just done too much. And, what we see today, is far from being the end. Much more can be expected!
